probably saw a really cool image. a nighttime view of the earth from space. nasa was able to show us this image, thanks to a new satellite equipped with something called visible infrared imaging radiometer suite. but this image of the globe from space is not what you might think it is. we do not have a camera far enough away from earth to get an image of the whole thing. it's a composite knitted together from data taken by the satellite as it made several passes around the earth. lots of the cool pictures you see like of hurricanes from earth are actually composites. anything close enough to the earth to be held by its gravitational pull is also too close to get a whole earth picture. for perspective, this is what the earth looks like from the international space station. you can't really see the whole thing at once. only a couple dozen earthlings have ever been far enough from the earth to see the whole thing. like the crew of apollo 8, who took this picture commonly known as "earth rise" from the window of the craft as they orbited the moon in 1968. unfortunately, nearly half the e

>>> this is earth after hours in a big way. nasa constructed throbbing at our little rock here using cloud-free night images from a new weather satellite. it is our best look yet at what our planet looks like with all the lights turned on there. check it out. as one scientist put it, unlike humans, the earth never sleeps. >> that's a cool image. >> beautiful. >>> now what sells cool? >> i'm not going there. [ laughter ] >> lawrence! >> look who never sleeps. >> yeah, guys. you know what? it's been wild weather around the bay area. we are finally going to catch a much-needed break as high pressure sneaks back in. temperatures around the bay area fairly mild this morning. a lot of clouds outside and, of course, with the rainfall, plenty of moisture on the ground so we are seeing some of that fog outside. be careful heading out the door. still, these numbers not too bad under mostly cloudy skies. we have a lot of 50s outside right now. 57 san jose, 56 san francisco. 58 oakland. looks like throughout the day the dense fog is going to start to break up and then by the afternoon partly cloudy s
40 years since that historic scene. the final nasa mission sending a man to walk on the moon. last person to do that. he is the commander of a apollo 17 and the last ever made on the moon's surface leaving a special legacy for america's space program. joining us live. captain eugene cernan and last man to walk on the moon. i can't tell you how excited i was to talk to you today. thank you for joining us. >> you are welcome heather. you might have guessed i had no requests for auditions. >> heather: did you plan ahead what you were going sing and what you were going to do? >> no, we didn't. we plan ahead all we're going to from a scientific, but everything else you heard from most of these missions, your reaction to the environment and reaction to things. even things that were said when we left the moon, they come to you because of what you are confronted with. >> heather: explain to us. take us all back there that moment when you first stepped foot on the to the moon surface. what did you see and what did it feel like? >> well, heather, my first step was mine. no matter what a lot
threats: disease, warmer seas and more acidic seas. it might be worth reminding the deniers what nasa says, the national air and space administration, what nasa says about climate change. here's what they say about global temperature rising -- and i quote -- "all three major global surface temperature reconstructions show that earth has warmed since 1880. most of this warming has occurred since the 1970's with the 20 warmest years having occurred since 1981 rand with all ten of the warmest years occurring in the past 12 years. even though the 2000's witnessed a solar decline in 2007 to 2009, surface temperatures continue to increase. on ocean temperature and sea level rise, nasa said -- and i quote -- "the oceans have absorbed much of this increased heat with the top 2,300 feet showing warming of .302 degrees tparpb heat since 1969. global sea level rose about 6.7 inches in the last century. the rate of sea level rise in the last decade, however, is nearly double that of the last century. and on ocean acidification, since the beginning of the industrial revolution, the acidity of surface o
it before. nasa just released what they're calling black marble images of the planet at night. you might be familiar with seeing the earth during the day, which is known as blue marble photos. engineers say getting a picture this clear at that time of the day is extremely rare because of cloud cover and seasonal changes. >> yeah, look at that. >> beautiful. >> really nice. >>> the time right now is 5:21. time to get a check of weather and traffic on the 1s and get ready for a cold little blast when you step outside. >> what's going on out there? >> we're in the earth's shadow now and it is cold here. we've got the festive lights that are now lighting up many neighborhoods and it's certainly now feeling like the holidays. it's down into the 20s. much of the region, we've dropped about 40 degrees here in the last 36 hours and it will be at our below freezing most of the region from the mountains and the valleys all the way through 8:00. we will climb to near 40 by noontime and into the mid 40s by afternoon time. the four-day forecast showing clouds moving in tonight. i think we're going to
